Right now, we as educators, along with the families and communities we serve, face what can seem like overwhelming challenges. As we navigate virtual schooling, the COVID-19 pandemic, and political division across our country, we must find ways to nurture ourselves and our colleagues and staff. In our November webinar, we will engage in a deepened conversation about how we support our staff, colleagues, and ourselves during times of upheaval or uncertainty in our communities.
Dr. Mary Antón will lead a discussion and offer resources to help us plan for ways to support ourselves and our staff and colleagues to center and affirm dignity in times of uncertainty. In this webinar we will discuss how we create spaces where we can disagree and have conversations that empower us and affirm the dignity of everyone involved.
Topics to consider include:
- How do we open dialogue and support each other to talk about successes and challenges with the changes to school this year — virtual, hybrid, social distancing, personal grief and stress, fear of COVID-19?
- During times of political division and upheaval, how do we, as professionals in schools and districts, respond?
Join us for a conversation about supporting ourselves and our staff through uncertain times. This webinar will include time for discussion and a Q&A.
In our discussion, we will discuss material from the blogs, Do you See Me? Am I Good Enough? Am I on the Inside or the Outside? and Affirming Dignity in the Time of Elections, by Dr. Mary Antón. Please take a few minutes to read these as you think about questions you might have.
This webinar is intended to support district leaders.
